STATESVILLE, N.C. (August 24, 2016) – Chris Buescher and Love’s Travel Stops will turn the clock back to 1981 – the year Love’s opened its first travel stop – for the Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway.
Front Row Motorsports and Love’s unveiled the No. 34 team’s paint scheme for the Sept. 4 Sprint Cup Series race Wednesday on social media. The stripes replicate the look that was on the fuel canopies and the building’s façade at the company’s first travel stop, which opened in 1981 in Amarillo, Texas. Today Love’s has more than 390 locations in 40 states and employs more than 15,000 people.
“The Darlington throwback weekend has become a pretty big deal, and it’s cool to have Love’s Travel Stops bring some of their history into the race weekend with their old colors,” said Buescher. “Darlington is my favorite track, and I can’t wait to get there and turn some laps in this special Love’s Ford Fusion.”
The Darlington Raceway event will celebrate the decade spanning 1975 to 1984 at this year’s race with throwback paint schemes on all 40 entries. The Bojangles’ Southern 500 will air live on NBC Sept. 4 at 6 p.m. ET.
